Fenty Declared 'Least Loathsome Politician'

Biting gossip blog Jossip today declared D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty among the least hateable power players around. Others so honored include Daily Beast editor Tina Brown, CNBC's Suze Orman, comedian Norm Macdonald and British author Ian McEwan.

We gave it to D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty for being able to host the inauguration without anyone getting killed. In fact, that whole shebang went way more smoothly than most could have hoped for, with the exception of Ted Kennedy's stroke. And we're like 90 percent sure that Fenty had nothing to do with that.

What D.C. figures do you consider "least loathsome"? Post your list in the comments.

"Thank you Kevin for this D.C. United jersey and congratulations on your terrific season. It is great to see over 20,000 fans here at RFK supporting D.C. United. It is my hope that your fans will soon be coming to your brand new soccer stadium at Poplar Point in Anacostia. World class fans, and a world class team like D.C. United, deserve a world class stadium. And I am going to make it a priority to help you build that stadium. Thank you -- congratulations and good luck to the Black-and-Red!"

-Adrian Fenty on Oct 29 2006 (right before a mayoral elction mind you)

Wow! Some people must live in a dream world. Mayor Fenty is a media hog,all about himself!! If anyone and I mean anyone,happens to bring Mayor Fenty any negative PR they are fired, asked to resign or if they do not work for the DC government they are blackballed. Come on people, do some "real investigative reporting" dig deeper find out who the "real Mayor Fenty" is..he's a fraud and he's scamming the people of DC.

"Least loathesome"?...Somebody lied to him.

Vincent Gray is a true leader and visionary for our city. The reason he wasn't chosen was because this was a list of the loathsome and not a list of the virtuous. Gray tops that list; Fenty wouldn't even make an honorable mention.
